“There is no question that building resilience must become a priority for us all….We can no longer accept our vulnerabilities or ignore the threats we live with….The good news is that resilience building is a concept that can be learned and a practice that can be developed.”

— Judith Rodin, The Resilience Dividend: Being strong in a world where things go wrong
